'William Shakespeare', Juan C Liberti, 1982

Exciting new addition to the Famous Beyond Words exhibition

Juan C Liberti

We were honoured to be given the opportunity to include this Juan C Liberti painting in our new Famous Beyond Words exhibition, which opened at Shakespeare's Birthplace in March 2014.

The painting was kindly contributed by the Fundación Shakespeare Argentina, who have been celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday with a series of events and activities this year. 

Our international collaboration with the FSA is particularly fitting in the context of the Famous Beyond Words exhibition, which explores the ways that Shakespeare's work continues to influence people all over the world.

The FSA also recently presented the Trust library with a copy of Rafael Squirru's translation of Hamlet, which was illustrated by Liberti in the 1970s. 

We were thrilled to include the painting in our exhibition and to ensure that Argentina's presence was represented amongst the global span of items on display.
